Forever Living Aloe Vera Gel
Advantages: helps feel rejuvenated, cleanses inside and outside
Disadvantages: not such a nice flavour, and quite expensive
I came across this gel drink as my mum somehow always finds these weird and diverse network marketing and decided to become enthralled in this forever living products business. The way she sold it to me was that this gel is good for cleansing the digestive system, and so with the new year looming, I decided for 2012 to begin with a healthy regime and begin a detox program.
I drank this aloe vera gel and took it as part of a detox program which lasted for 9 days. The first 2 days I drank 4oz of this gel three times a day and the aloe vera shake together with the supplements. I actually managed to last the first 2 days without eating anything and only these products (hoorah for me!).
On the 3rd day I reduced my intake to 4oz only twice a day, still consuming the bee pollen and the vanilla forever living shake (other products sold in this range) and having a large dinner in the evening as a meal. I did this for the remainder of the detox. Surprisingly I found I had more energy, I didn't feel sluggish in the mornings (even though I would still feel sluggish after a good night's sleep usually) and I was much more alert, helpful when you have a hyperactive 2 year old! In the digestive sense I did find it made my stool a lighter colour and more solid coinciding with me having a lot more regular bowel movements.
Apparently the 3 reasons to drink aloe are:
1. more energy
2. cleanse digestive system
3. builds up immune system
In a sense it is a good product but the downside is this : it tastes HORRIBLE! I stuck it out over the 9 days by sheer willpower and my mum keeps convincing me that you get used to it after a while but I never did! It did also make my face a lot clearer, not that I suffer from a lot of spots but in general, feeling alert and rejuvenated did have a positive affect on my appearance.
This drink can be bought for £20 from any forever living distributor 1 litre. comes in 4 flavours, this is the pure aloe gel, but the other flavours are forever freedom (orange), berry nectar (cranberry and apple), and bits and peaches (apparently a favourite among children!) If I was to continue using this product, I would definitely try one of the drinks with a fruity flavour!
Summary: a good product! but only for those who will like the taste!
